Diecut UK, the Preston, UK-based machinery manufacturer and supplier, has announced the installation of its Redline 1700SF semi-automatic diecutter at Box-It in Ireland.
Box-It (Ireland) realised that its two existing hand-fed platens were not coping with the increase in the number of orders and wanted to be able to substantially increase productivity. The company investigated the possibilities on the market and initially chose to approach Diecut mainly due to its confidence in the vast market experience of Steve Waterhouse, Diecut UK’s managing director.
Alan Knox and Barry McAllister, of Box It, then saw an existing Redline in operation and were so impressed by the production rate and quality of the diecutting that they placed their order for the Redline 1700 with a stripping section along with grip edge and waste removal.
The machine has a maximum diecutting capability of 1,700mm x 1,180mm with variable speed control and mechanical pressure settings, running at 3,500 sheets per hour leaving a 100 per cent stripped blank.
Box It have now had the Redline in production for four months, they are delighted by the increase in production and say that the Redline has already “proved its worth”.
